CLLD Support (Bridlington)

ERVAS has been successfully awarded funding from the Advantage Coast Programme, under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) grants. This funding allows us to deliver up to 12 hours of intensive support (per organisation) to local groups and charities based within the East Riding of Yorkshire Council CLLD funded area.

We are here to support the VCSE towards sustainability and enhance the services available to local communities throughout the town and neighbouring villages.

In addition we will provide a programme of organisational training opportunities within the area for Social Businesses and will strengthen and increase attendance at their current networking opportunities and develop new opportunities for networking in line with the needs of organisations accessing support.

Devan Witter BEM, Fiona Turner and Nicola Knaggs make up the CLLD Bridlington team and can offer tailored packages of support from recruiting volunteers, and providing governance assistance and policy templates to offering training courses and funding searches and help in bid writing, as well as providing a programme of organisational training opportunities.

For details of available training courses visit our training website.

Our monthly Local-Links meetings provide a networking opportunity for groups to share experiences, engage with similar groups and develop new activities through collaborative working.

The Bridlington Community Hub will be on the 2nd floor of the new Bridlington Town Council building, 2 Marshall Avenue, Bridlington and we are hoping it will be completely open to the public from February 2021.

With private office/counselling rooms, hot desks and a large meeting room area along with kitchen facilities available for use, it will provide a wide range of uses to any individual, group, club, charity, business or support offering.

As well as the ERVAS CLLD team based there, it will have other support functions available to help with issues such as:

  • Homelessness
  • Armed Forces support
  • Crime Prevention
  • Food Poverty
  • Social Deprivation

There will be a reception area manned with volunteers accessible to all. This will provide a one stop shop for information, support and guidance across all sectors.
